Join the most influential investors, mobile industry executives, entrepreneurs, press and analysts at MobileBeat for one-day of in depth discussion, debate and power networking.
The mobile ecosystem has become a battleground for developers. Here’s why: The explosion of applications has enabled dramatic growth of data traffic which is expected to double each year from 2008 through 2012. Carriers are are under pressure as players like Apple, Microsoft and Google – well, just about everybody and their grandma – seek to own application distribution. Meanwhile, money will be made from sales of these apps. The use of these new apps is transforming our everyday lives and spurring innovation and the formation of many start ups. This one-day event is designed to connect entrepreneurs and developers with other key players in the mobile ecosystem and the investment community. MobileBeat will attract 400 senior excutives representing this dynamic community to explore the emerging business models of the future, discuss which business models will die off and highlight the most disruptive start ups. The program will include provocative keynotes and panel discussions, breakout sessions, a start up competition featuring seven early stage mobile innovators and a networking reception.
